    Yes, I'm one of them! :) I like the music of Toto and the work of Mike Porcaro. The bass line of "Melanie" is one of my favorites in terms of taste and feeling...

    Although I don`t like Toto`s music, I have a HUGE respect for their musicians. Mike Porcaro is a groove monster. You won`t see him playing lots of notes or slapping like a freak, but he`s solid as hell.

    I`ve been watching their "Live in Amsterdam" DVD and his performance is flawless. Besides he gets a terrific tone from his Peavey Cirrus 5.
